Mori Art Museum’s current exhibition is focusing on artists active in Japan’s contemporary art scene. It’s a great chance to learn about contemporary artists in Japan, how their style changed, and how their art spread and affected the whole world!
The Mori Art Museum has always been in the center of contemporary art when it comes to architecture, design, fashion, and many other genres. It is well-known for its cutting edge, extravagant and interesting exhibitions. The current exhibition “STARS: Six Contemporary Artists from Japan to the World” is showcasing Japan’s contemporary art by exhibiting the works of six acclaimed artists who played a big role in stimulating and developing Japan’s art scene.
The six artists featured in the exhibition are Yayoi Kusama, Lee Ufan, Tatsuo Miyajima, Takashi Murakami, Yoshitomo Nara, and Hiroshi Sugimoto. Even though the exhibition is about the contemporary art scene in Japan, the selection of artists includes a non-Japanese artist ー something that speaks about the Mori Art Musem’s way of thinking and presenting art.
The 6 artists
Past and Present
The artists are introduced separately one after the other, showcasing some of their early works together with their latest works. This allows the visitor to see who their style transformed over time, where they came from, and where they are going.
The exhibition will go on until the beginning of January, 2021. So if you want to see your favorite artists’ works in person, or if you are new to Japan’s contemporary art scene, this is the perfect opportunity to get a great overview. Don’t miss the chance to dive into the world of art at the Mori Art Museum!
